Originally published: 1997

I’ve been all over the place for Thanksgiving and read this over the span of like three days. That doesn’t make for the most pleasant comic-reading experience. Fortunately, I thought this story was strong and I liked that it wasn’t a straightforward Spidey-beats-up-the-bad-guys kinda thing. Here we had a “villain” that was being a little reckless and dangerous but didn’t (really) deserve the full-frontal assault he got from Spider-Man (and every other hero in the area). This provides a good opportunity for some guilt and remorse on Spidey’s part, which I think is when I like his character best.

Apparently the story of this character, Sundown, is continued in ASM Annual ’97, but I don’t have that scheduled for quite awhile. I hope that’s right…
